City police investigate woman’s death

The Marietta Police Department is investigating the Saturday morning death of a Belpre woman at a Marietta home.

According to Marietta Police Capt. Jeff Waite, 29-year-old Ashley Morgan Young, of 903 Campbell Drive, was found dead on arrival at 212 Maple St. around 5:45 a.m.

Young’s body has been sent for an autopsy at the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office, he said.

Waite said it is too early to say whether foul play is suspected.

“It’s still under investigation,” he said.

Multiple people live at the 212 Maple St. home, said Waite. He would not comment on whether or not other people were present at the time of death.
